Deep Prakashan has launched “Neurosurgeoner Diary” written by Dr Amitabha Chanda, a trailblazer in 'Awake Brain Surgery' in Eastern India and Bangladesh. The book was launched on January 5 by distinguished guests - renowned author Sirshendu Mukhopadhyay, renowned doctor and professor, Sukumar Mukherjee , and veteran actor Chiranjeet Chakrabarti.

 Known for his innovative approach to operating on brain tumours while patients remain conscious, Dr Amitabha Chanda has accumulated over 35 years of medical experience. His book, Neurosurgeoner Diary, is a gripping compilation of remarkable and unexpected cases encountered throughout his illustrious career.


In a society where the terms 'brain tumour' and 'spine surgery' often evoke fear and uncertainty, Dr Chanda's book seeks to provide insight into the remarkable progress made in neurosurgical procedures. The narrative showcases how advancements in medical science have transformed once-incurable neurosurgical conditions into treatable cases.


“Neurosurgeoner Diary is not an autobiography. I have tried to pen some of the unique experiences I have gathered in my career as a Neurosurgeon in this book. Becoming a Neurosurgeon was not an easy decision as there were hurdles aplenty; but now when I see that today, people from South India and Mumbai come to Kolkata to get themselves treated by me, I feel I must have done something right. There are many misconceptions around Neurosurgery like once the patient is transferred to ventilation, chances of getting back to normalcy become null, but that is absolutely baseless. Through this book, I want to share with my readers answers to the various queries they have regarding neurosurgery. I feel that these stories will increase courage and morale in many people. There are many difficult situations in life when it is possible to defeat the demon of illness by serving, loving, and standing by close relatives. These stories will reassure the reader to overcome difficult situations and return to normal life”, said Dr Amitabha Chanda, Neurosurgeon.


"We are glad to release Neurosurgeoner Diary from Deep Prakashan, which features Dr Amitabha Chanda's radical narratives. When Dr Chanda narrated the real-life incidents that he has experienced, I had then and there decided to publish a book on this subject as nothing much on this is written about. This book stands not only as a literary piece of work but as a beacon of hope, bridging the realms of medical practices and compassionate storytelling. Neurosurgeoner Diary is a testament to our commitment at Deep Prakashan to bring impactful narratives that inspire, inform and foster understanding for our readers,” said Shankar Mondal, proprietor, Deep Prakashan.


Dr Chanda's Neurosurgeoner Diary is not merely a collection of medical anecdotes; it is an effort to inspire hope in the families of patients facing neurosurgical challenges. By dispelling prevalent misconceptions and presenting true, awe-inspiring accounts, the book aims to bridge the gap between medical science and public understanding.
